Raising aspirations together

At PGL, we use the outdoors to deliver unforgettable residential school trips for primary and secondary pupils. We are dedicated to creating a learning experience outside the classroom that engages students and makes lasting memories.

We have over 65 years of experience providing thrilling, educational and inspiring residential activity holidays for pupils of all ages. All PGL residential activity centres have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge – an achievement we’re proud of. We continually work with schools, local authorities and academies throughout the UK to ensure our curriculum-based activity courses meet your needs effectively.

Planning a residential for your school students can aid individual development by boosting confidence and promoting team bonding. Whether you’re looking for a residential outdoor adventure activity course, an educational school trip, a subject-focused study course or a school ski trip, we’re experts at delivering bespoke residential trips to schools across the UK.
